Scripts are often sold based on an accompanying short, web series, sizzle/trailer, one-sheet, treatment and even a new structural script format for the digital marketplace. Many prominent scriptwriters are also selling reality shows based off their film scripts. Attendees will gain insight on how to get unscripted (reality) TV shows optioned and sold as leverage to sell other projects.
Scriptwriters will receive detailed information on how to create commercially viable marketing materials to help sell their scripts and how to successfully query literary agents and managers.
